Tokyo Conference Must Make Clear the World Community Commitment to Afghanistan post 2014

A number of active civil society members in a gathering on Monday called for the specification of commitment from the world community at the Tokyo conference, which is due to be held on July 8.

The purpose of the conference would be to examine ways to help Afghanistan after 2014, what is a considered a transformational period for Afghanistan.

“We have the right to know the specific role of the international community in assisting Afghanistan post-2014,” said Khanum Sameera Hamidi, head of Afghan Women’s Network in the Civil Society.

Afghan Civil Societies will gather at the “Afghan National Civil Society Conference” in the following week to decide on the members to participate in the Tokyo conference. More than 250 civil society representatives would attend the Afghan National Civil Society Conference and 30 would be selected for the conference in Japan.

Mohammad Naeem Nazari, responsible for the “Civil Society and Human Rights in Afghanistan” entity, said that the Afghan civil society representatives at the Tokyo Conference would have specific agenda that would be brought up to the table for discussion.

Supporting good governance, working for transparency and accountability, fighting corruption and appreciating the achievement of the past ten years are some of the strategic programs of the civil societies, said Mr. Nazari.

The government of Afghanistan has announced its preparation for this conference. Tokyo Conference will try to give a clear picture on Afghanistan needs after 2014 to the world.
